A great way to use leftovers is to make them into croquettes. In this recipe, you can use any leftover meat you have in the refrigerator as the base for these crisp little bites. You make a simple bechamel sauce, add the meat and then let it chill in the refrigerator before breading and frying it. If you want to add some extra flavor, add some fresh spices that will complement your choice of meat to the mixture.
